    Watch out though, they are ridiculously expensive.

    Yes you are correct. I am sorry that I forgot to mention that. The plugs do not match up. I was thinking of just fitting and not wiring.

    You will have to splice all the wiring.

    I wish they'd make the cheaper aftermarket ones like they started with the Chevy's a few years back. I've had the $700 mirrors and the under $200 mirrors and honestly you'd never know the difference. They even make the 06-up style as plug and play for the 99-02's. Been patiently waiting for the 08 Ford ones to surface. I'd be happy with a manual set for my 04 XL.

    be careful with the china knock offs, i have a set of towing mirrors i put on my 01 to match my 05 and they are NOT the same, even though they look very similar, the coverage is horrible and slightly askew. i ended up backing into and swiping a car with the china ones because I "knew where I was" using the mirror like I would my OEM's on the other truck.

    I am looking for a set of OEM's 08+ for my 01 and maybe my 05 too if I can stumble across some. I will NOT buy the china ones again.

    The runners, turn signals, heat, and power mirrors all function off the factory switches.

    Yes My stock 05 mirrors had all the same options I just had to hook up the wires. And of course I sold the 05 ones rather fast to the guys that wanted those options with the older trucks.
